Thanks very much Stefen.
I installed libtool 2.2.6b to /usr/local/ cause I noticed
in configure.ac. The libtool comes with my distribution (FC10) is 1.5.26.
You are right that the aclocal in my distribution doesn't get along with
libtool 2.2.6b. I got several weird issues.
Anyway, with libtool in my distribution and with following patch to
configure.ac, I was able to run autogen.sh correctly. I even cross compiled
the plugin for mips.
dnl required version of libtool
This should get me going for a while. Thanks!

However, if you want the underlying mechanism, it isnt a semantic issue,
because at some level, there is no more rug to shuffle things under. - Bilge
